Playing imported HDV question

Advertisement

I use Final Cut Studio 2 at school, and import off our HDV camcorders using Final Cut. I've noticed the format used is Quicktime MOV with the HDV codec. Is there any way to play these files back on a pc running Windows Vista? I don't have Final Cut on my Macbook Pro at home, but I do have Adobe Premiere CS4 on a PC. Is there a way to play back and use .mov with HDV codec on a PC without re-rendering everything to another codec?

Nope. The HDV codec Final Cut Pro uses is only available on computers with Final Cut Pro installed. The easiest solution is to transcode your files to ProRes 422 and install that codec on your PC. Download the codec here:
